notice how eric cantor, the house majority leader voted on the fiscal cliff deal last night. he voted against it. some have interpreted that to be premonition, an indication perhaps there will be some sort of a challenge to the speakership of john boehner. however we have heard nobody speak publicly, nobody speak on the record in that regard. keep in mind if his speakership were to be challenged would require a vote not just of the republican conference but the entire house of representatives. jenna: big question whether or not a change in leadership would elicit different results that is conversation yet to be had in the coming weeks. >> so you try. jenna: doug, thank you very much. jon: so the white house and congress knew of the self-imposed deadline for more than 17 months and they still managed to blow past it. finally approving a tax deal last night that doesn't seriously address the spending cuts or the nation's ballooning deficit. so who wins and who loses with this deal? talk about it with jonah gold perg, editor-at-large at "the national review" and a fox news contributor. b

eric cantor that he is against the bill. how damning is it that top republicans are coming out saying they're opposed to deal? >> that is very problematic. that could be a situation where a number about republicans say, look we have tax rates that have gone up. it is beyond january 1st, midnight. what this represents, this proposal is a tax cut, a major tax cut, basically for anybody, any family making less than $450,000 a year. on top of that, you also got this next round upcoming that of a debt ceiling fight. there are republicans like senator lindsey graham who are saying look, make sure you take the debt ceiling fight with your spending cuts, for the spending cut fight. why don't we make sure we cut taxes now and move onto that next round? that is a feeling among a number about republicans here. you have a significant amount of democrats, perhaps who could potentially come along with this. it is still so early in the stage, can't believe we're saying it is early in this because it is beyond the fiscal cliff deadline and into new year's day. still lots of to be worked out. a lot of
